Langsford Street Cemetery 


Welcome to the Langsford Cemetery, a former hay field overlooking the bay.

Langsford Cemetery
32-34 Langsford Street
Gloucester, Massachusetts 01930


Established 1857 

The residents of Lanesville were farmers, fishermen, traders, teachers, postmen, seamstresses, artists, sculptors, coachmen, and quarrymen. Our streets were named for them, and their stories tell about their connection to the sea and granite; both shaped their lives and deaths. 

There are about 320 graves here. They memorialize our ancestors, some of the family members of those interred in Cove Hill and Seaside Cemeteries. They are the history of Lanesville. 

Veterans from the War of 1812, the Civil War, World War 2, Korea, and Vietnam are honored here.
